Running the initial capacity scan

Available from 9.2.5. The initial capacity scan is needed only to gather detailed information about the scanned IBM i system. You will use this information to create the computer.yml file that describes your IBM i system, and is required for each import of new scan results. All subsequent capacity scans will be initiated from a script that schedules them to run automatically every 30 minutes.

Note: This task is optional, because it can be completed by an automated script. Use it only for advanced scenarios.


Go to /cit, and run the script.


The results were saved in /cit/output/hw_scan_all/last.xml. You can now create the computer.yml file.
